So, let's say you've started using ShutterCal, but you have been taking pictures pretty much daily for a long time, and you'd like to upload them i[/i] -- but they go back further than the calendar year when you first started here. How does one do that?
The only "trick" to posting older pictures is to get to the previous year i[/i]. The most consistent way I currently have tested is to:
[*] Make sure your browser's "navigation toolbar" is showing i[/i].
[*] Add/modify YOUR calendar's URL to a date in the month you want to start posting in (of the form YYYY/MM/DD ... but without any leading zeros for single digit month or day values).
For example, since it's now 2010, to get to Aug. 3, 2009, modify the URL to look something like:
[i] (note: 'your-login-name' should be [b]YOUR[/b] actual login name, not the letters Y O U R - L O G ....) [/i]
Notice that the "Year list" at the top of the calendar will NOT immediately reflect any change of year, but the layout of the month should be correct and you can click on one of those day-boxes to upload a picture. Once you have uploaded the first picture for that year, then the "year navigation" will 'correct' itself and you should be able to navigate further as "normal" (clicking on the month or year "words" at the top of your calendar).
Great tip!! I may consider loading my old 365s sometime. Thanks.
I whipped up a little tool to let you go straight to the upload page for a specific date:
Choose a date at the top, then hit the button to go to the upload page. To get rid of the frames, click the "Back to ShutterCal" link on the right.
I just signed up and am looking to do some projects that require going back in years.
I tried the first option you suggested...by changing my browser
to reflect a different date.
My questions are:
How many years can I go back?If I finish a older year...how do I go about printing it?
1- as many as you want (but please don't go back past realistic dates)
2- here's a video on how to print http://shuttercal.com/blog/124/
Make sure you get the address for the actual image, not just
a page which includes an image.
